    I put up a gate, sometimes my toddler sleeps on the floor, sometimes he sleeps on his pile of teddies lol sometimes he sleeps in his bed
    he will find a blanket if he gets cold etc and I dont care where he's asleep as long as he's asleep, often once he's down I'll move him into his bed

    he went into a bed just before 2 as while he couldnt climb out he refuse to sleep inn a cot at all, just screamed the entire time he was in there

    It does get better I swear!!!
    DS1 did this for about 3-4 months. Was extremely tiring. We ended up standing/sitting by his door and ignoring him. It worked in the end and now at 3 he goes straight to bed and stays there. We do keep the bedtime routine very strict still just in case. He has his sleep aids that seem to help too (couple of teddies and a Thomas light).

    My DD did this from about 18 months. I used to lock the bedroom door so she couldn't get out, but I would stay in the bedroom with her and lie on her bed until she joined me. She would scream to get out, run around the room and muck around for about an hour, then climb into bed and fall asleep. I didn't enjoy it, but I felt comfortable about being firm with the door lock because I was still there. For me, it was an acceptable balance between being tough and respectful.

    Good luck OP, it's a difficult stage!

    This is my life right now - except a DS and he's 2.5. Please tell me your DD goes off quietly to bed without all the drama?!

    Hehe, yes, we never have the drama with her anymore. But I do still lie down with her and she's 4.5 now. Now it takes her about 45 mins, which includes a story and a chat and lying quietly in bed. I've also just started doing a guided meditation with her to help get her to sleep. Now it's her little sister who's a bit challenging!
